Loopholes cost the government money.
Too bad the Republicans couldn't find a single loop hole to close.
Which "loophole" do you want to close: home mortgage interest deduction, state and local tax deductions, or charitable deductions?

Boehner called Gregory's objection "nonsense."
"Well David, that's just nonsense. If they had a plan, why wouldn't Senate Democrats go ahead and pass it," he said.
Boehner returned to this point throughout the interview, insisting that Democrats do not have a plan because the Democratic-controlled Senate has not voted on one.

Still running from your posts.
The topic was my response to one of your dumbass right whiner buddies who claimed that Obama submitted on two budgets.
Then you jumped in having a GD fit screaming about these budgets.
So it was you that changed the subject while failing to admit that Obama did indeed submit budgets every year.
You still can't admit t.
What a pathetic POS loser.
GFY
"real dumb"
It's Sunday. Calm down, don't let your crap get so hot. Hey "real dumb" I commented not at all on how many budgets that president nobama presented, I did comment they were so inane he could not get a single vote to support the crap he offered. The subject was budgets, I did not change the topic I simply said the loser occupying the white house has nary a clue. In your dim world president nobama offered budgets in the mind of the sane those who actually thing he presented fantasy.
The question in my mind is when is the president going to make a decision on the pipeline. Two questions actually, who is going to piss off?
- The unions by not okaying the pipe line and the thousands of high paying jobs it would provide, or
- The eco idiots who piss and moan.
Should be interesting.

The whiner and Chief out blaming Republicans again demonstrating his ineptness to Lead!! The president has the latitude to pick and choose where and what to Cut but he chooses to play Politics … Good grief, the entire sequester would have reduced last year’s deficit from $1.33&#8201;trillion to $1.24&#8201;trillion. A fraction of a fraction!!

Bob Woodward and the Rules of Washington Morality
Why does Bob Woodward get to lie—twice!—and still be Bob Woodward?
Excellent point!

Woodward is prime target for an Obama drone attack.

......don't forget the Republicans get the blame in all the polls!

George Bush administration gave us the 2008 stock market crash as voters remembered in the 2012 election

Only one Republican candidate for president gained a majority of the popular vote in the last 20 years.

There was too much greed in this country before the crisis. I was convinced it would be our undoing. As it turns out, I was right.
The golden opportunity to reprioritize our values came and went. Instead the pendulum swung completely in the opposite direction.
If greed is one end of the spectrum, then lack of incentive is the other which is just as dangerous.
There is a happy medium. We can only hope we find it before we go too far the other way.

Funny!
Same old republican tea party nonsense that lost you the election.

So WE, the people, are no longer governing OURSELVES?

No question this is what we are witnessing because half the nation no longer believes this and elected the same leaders who promise them everything and deliver nothing.

The question is, do YOU no longer believe this?

Jerry Brown is in the midst of a political meltdown and doesn't know if he's coming or going. California is the model of what the nation should avoid at all costs.
